Christmas Wreath

I was feeling very creative on the weekend and finally got around to making a tinsel and bauble wreath. It was super easy and harly took any time at all.


I wrapped a strand of pink and silver tinsel around a cane wreath. It only needed one strand. I stuck down the ends with hot glue.



I then attached glass and plastic baubles directly onto the cane using a hot glue gun. Easy peasy!



Some new baubles I bought at the Galleria today. I saw these earlier in the season but they were quite expensive. Only $4 each at a gift shop in the Galleria!
My Christmas shopping is pretty much done except for some little bits and pieces. The shops are going mad now and I wish I could stay away. Unfortunately I have to work in them!

  2. Thanks Peta, as much as I dislike the sales crowds, I will hit them to find a tree! Though I'll probably come out with much more!! Im so glad I dont work in amongst all that, I sympathize with you, I know how hard you must work! Hopefully you will find some good bargains too!
    Love the wreath, lots of bling!

  4. Great job on the wreath Peta. So much fun when it's not too labour intensive and comes out looking so good.

  9. Clever Cookie Peta, love the wreath, very elegant! The crowds are massive aren't they, going to the post office is a nightmare, I usually take my lunch with me and stand eating it waiting in the line.
